    Default Question about promeris?

    My bully, tubby had a bout of demodectic mange and after a couple of treatments she is all clear. The other day on a normal visit to the vet he recommended we treat her with a product called promeris. Its a monthly flea treatment but it also kills demodectic mange mites. I was wondering if any one else has used this or is currently using it and what are the side effects if any.

    I'm sorry, I'm not help. Never had to deal with mange and have never even heard of that drug. But I looked it up and this is what 1800petmeds.com said:

    When licked from the application site dogs responded with head shaking, licking, lethargy and salivation. All of these responses resolved without treatment. When used between the shoulder blades, as directed, it should be difficult for a dog to lick the product. Individual sensitivities, while rare, may occur after the use of any pesticide product. If skin irritation, change in behavior, vomiting or diarrhea is observed and persists after the use of this product, call your veterinarian immediately.

    No experience here either but, from what I gather, one of the components of this medication is relatively new and not time-tested. Since your bully doesn't have mange anymore, I would probably fault on the side of caution and ask if you can put your baby on something more established since there are many, many reliable flea treatments to choose from.

    never heard of promeris. our bullie got mange when he was about 3 to 4 months old we treated it about 3 weeks later it was all cleared up. a few weeks ago he got a little spot on his head which ended up mange again. if its supposed to what it says guess it wouldnt hurt to try it.. we dont have to use flea control on our boys
